Star Wars: The Old Republic Trailer
I loved Knights of the Old Republic and enjoyed Knights of the Old Republic 2, and the more I see from the new Star Wars MMO The Old Republic, the more I want to play it!
The trailer blew me away, and the details from the demo thrill me!
Welcome to the first fully-voiced MMO ever, filled with BioWare-style dialog choices, including the first-ever multi-character dialog system - in other words, two characters who enter a "flashpoint," the game's term for cutscenes, will both be able to participate in a story- and character-advancing dialog engagement that can drastically alter the outcome and reward of a mission (Gay Gamer).
I hope the fact that the MMO will have a story will discourage many of the people who make MMOs less fun from playing.
Other tantalizing hints about which we received few details from a tight-lipped LucasArts: a light/dark path system for all characters that further enhances character progression (we saw a Sith character earn light side points for sparing an Imperial captain during a flashpoint scene) and, in true BioWare fashion, romance possibilities. No word, of course, on same-sex romance possibilities (Gay Gamer).
I can't wait to see how this all comes together in the game. It sounds like it is going to be the Star Wars MMO I have wanted since they messed up Star Wars Galaxies again.
